Guays (グエー Guē?) are recurring enemies in the Legend of Zelda series. These small, crow-like birds will attack Link by dive-bombing in his general direction. They also occasionally attack in flocks, which makes them harder to defeat. They usually leave behind a large amount of Rupees when defeated.
Guays appear in Lake Hylia, Desert Colossus, and at Lon Lon Ranch at night. They re-spawn infinitely and after Link defeats enough of them, a Big Guay will appear. It is no stronger than a standard Guay, but it drops a high-valued Rupee when defeated.
|“Destroy it before it flies into you!”|
Guays appear mostly near trees. A lone Guay can be found circling Clock Town in Termina Field; however, it does not attempt to attack. If Link plays a particular song on his instrument while wearing the corresponding mask (for example, the "New Wave Bossa Nova" while wearing the Zora Mask), the Guay will drop several Green Rupees and a Red Rupee. A number of Guays can be found flying around the pond in the Snowhead region during spring, and in Ikana Canyon.
|“Just attack it before it swoops down on you. That's all there is to it.”|
Guays are found either alone, nesting in fir trees or on rocks, or swarming in flocks. They swoop down at Link and do not stop attacking him unless he goes out of striking distance. Guays share physical similarities with vultures, and have glowing blue eyes. If Link dispatches an entire flock of Guays (it does not work on the Guays flock that appears in Kakariko Village at night), Rupees will drop from the sky nearby.
Guays appear in outdoor areas. Like in past games, they will attempt to fly into Link, damaging him. However, Guays also have the new ability of flying over Link and defecating on him. This will slowly drain Link's stamina until he shakes off the droppings. When Link's stamina is empty, Link will automatically shake it off. Guays also appear in open areas of The Sky carrying Rupees. Link can claim the Rupees by attacking them with his Loftwing.
